Christmas is done for another year but I have another project to share with you. I didn’t want to miss sharing this.
I call this my Shimmer Bauble. This is a clear Christmas Bauble with Copper Shimmer Paint swirled inside. I had this in mind but I wasn’t sure if it would work. I was really pleased how it turned out.
The Bauble is one with the little cap at the top. You can get them that open up in half but I don’t think it would work as well. I first poured the Shimmer Paint in to the lid of the little paint pot and then very carefully (and I will say very nervously) poured it in to the bauble. I used small amounts at first as I wasn’t sure how much it would need. I put enough in that I could then turn the bauble and swirl the Shimmer paint around inside to coat it randomly and create “runs” with the paint too.
I needed to add a little more over a few goes for it to move over most of the sides. I didn’t want it to completely cover it though. I left the bauble open sitting in a bowl so the paint could dry out. I even left it tipped upside down for a few hours as there was a pool of paint in the bottom.
Once it had dried out I put in the cap, tied around some of the Copper Reversible Ribbon and added a tag. The sentiment on the tag is from Hearts Come Home and it is cut with a small rectangle Framelit from the Farmhouse Framelits. I added a couple of tiny “snowflakes” from the Hearts Come Home set that were stamped with the Copper Shimmer Paint.
This was such a fun project to make. Maybe I could try the Gold Shimmer and the White … Mmm! have a to work on those.
Thanks for visiting. See you again soon as we now move on from Christmas.
